Putting the Wisconsin Jobs Creation Picture in Perspective

Graph source:  Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Wisconsin gains 24,305 private-sector jobs in 12 months, ranks 34th in nation. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 9/26/2013)

Excerpt: Wisconsin gained 24,305 private-sector jobs in the 12 months from March 2012 to March 2013, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics — a 1.1% increase that ranks the state 34th among the 50 states in the pace of job creation over that time frame. The ranking was little changed from a revised rank of 36th released three months earlier, which covered the 12-month period through December 2012.

We still have a jobs deficit, folks.
